~ real venice ~
the summer holidays may be over, but you can still get a taste of europe at its best.
real venice at somerset house showcases original works by 14 renowned artists including philip-lorca diCorcia, nan goldin and hiroshi watanabe. the exhibition captures the paradox of venice as a major, historical tourist site and the damage this mass tourist exposure is doing to the city, as it already battles against geographical destruction.
real venice runs until 11 december, so there’s plenty of time to pay a visit. what’s more, all the works in the exhibition have been donated by the artists to be sold in aid of venice in peril.
